Ers to be presented with continuity and kindness There is certainly enough material here to make than ne series Having been a fan f the series Heartbeat I was surprised to find ut it was based Pioneer Jews: A New Life in the Far West on real life stories from Nicholas Rhea a North Yorkshire policeman There are 2 books here for the pricef 1 Being a fan Eating Thin for Life: Food Secrets Recipes from People Who Have Lost Weight Kept It Off of the series somef the characters were well known to me such as Claude Greengrass who is always getting involved in money making schemes which usually get thwarted by the police Sergeant Blaketon is a tough nut and does not give Nick an easy time A Russian spy roams the Yorkshire countryside and a few dubious drivers are among some f the stories in the collection For me the funniest story is about the thieving dog that is insured for both damaging items he steals but also for getting any females pregnantEach book has 9 long chapters usually a few anecdotes n the same theme It is set in a gentler time when there were police We, the People on the beat and people were trustingf strangers Anyone who has been to Yorkshire can picture the rural villages even if they never saw Heartbeat A very enjoyable book to forget about the stresses Single of modern livingI was given a free copyf the book for an honest review Like a number f reviewers here I got this double bill f Nicholas Rhea books from Crime Classics Advance Readers Club the plan being to read and review by the end f MarchI was aware f these books and had seen a number f episodes f Heartbeat based upon the books and as good as it may have been it was not really my thing So I was not relishing the pportunity to read this titleAs it happens I was actually uite taken with the stories The author is writing from a position f knowledge Showa, 1939-1944: A History of Japan of his subject and the location where the stories are set which gives the reader a real sensef place Also he writes with a genuine good nature an interest in people and with a knack for storytelling and even comic timing Unfortunately my timing was such that I didn t get both titles in this single publication finished so in fairness my review is actually for Constable Around the VillageEach The Book Of The Superiority Of Dogs Over Many Of Those Who Wear Clothes of the 18 stories in the book 9 in each title are short enough and light enough to read just before lightsut without leading to nightmares r reuiring reading into the wee small hours To be honest this is perfect bedtime readingJust wish I had started this sooner uite looking forward to the next ne now My thanks to Crime Classics Advanced Readers Club for a digital copy Rescuing a Werewolf of this double book in return for an honest review First published in the sixties as two separate books think All Creatures Great and Small in termsf law enforcement in ru.
